Helen Hartness Flanders Ballad Collection

One of the nation's great archival collections of New England folksong, folklore, and balladry, the Flanders Ballad Collection was the lifework of Helen Hartness Flanders (1890-1972), of Springfield, Vermont.  Over the course of thirty years, and with the assistance of Marguerite Olney, Flanders gathered and preserved more than 4,800 field recordings of New England folksongs and ballads as sung by native Vermonters and other New Englanders. In May, 1941, she donated the collection to Middlebury College with the proviso that it be kept in a "fireproof environment" and that it should be used as a resource for academic and scholarly research.

The Flanders Ballad Collection remains one of Middlebury's greatest research collections, consulted frequently by folklorists and musicians locally, nationally, and internationally. Titles of books, songsters, and hymnals in the Flanders Collection are available in Middlebury's online catalog. We at Middlebury College Special Collections and Archives are extremely excited to make much of this content, including IRENE optical scans of rare wax cylinder field recordings, printed broadsides, and more available to the public via the Internet Archive.
